Nonfiction Monday is hosted today at Wendie's Wanderings.
For Nonfiction Monday -- "Abraham Lincoln and Frederick Douglass : thestory behind an American friendship" by Russell Freedman.
From the incomparable Russell Freedman -- the vividly written story of the relationship between these two historical figures and how their friendship informed both their lives. Freedman provides background on both Douglas and Lincoln leading up to their first meeting, then follows these two self-educated men with differing points of view as they struggled to find common ground.
Period illustrations, documents and photographs, primary sources with notes and a selected bibliography provide additional background and enrichment for students in grades five to eight.
Freedman at his best.
